Solar flare



May 14, 2008 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: SOL

What do you think - will it last?  Or this just a knee-jerk reaction to a few positive earnings reports from CSIQ, and others.

Looks like some believe that the trend is here to stay!

Google, BP, StatoilHydro invest in solar thermal firm:

BrightSource gets $115 million in new funding

I'm going to add several more solar stocks to my CAPS portfolio.

I think it is definitely a bubble, but it will almost certainly last longer than I think it is going to. I think the tip off to solar market top will be when firms with no earnings and no actual business plan but with "solar" in the name get huge IPO's. I don't think we are there yet.

I think this is great news. I feel this is just the beginning for a modest increase for solar systems to be used with energy companies, many businesses and eventually more residential customers. About 28 Macy's stores installed solar electric power systems, just recently, here on the West coast with SunPower Solar (SPWR), and will be adding more systems to southern California stores.

Hopefully, this will be the beginning for solar to really start taking off.

As econom ies of scale develop, prices will come down and more players will enter the market, eroding the "moat" that bloated companies like FSLR have.  Dangerous shorting, dangerous going long.

Be interesting to see what happens to solar stocks, when Nanosolar IPOs this fall. That one could be a game changer and knock out some of the weaker solar players
